The central committee leadership also continued to plan for the WCC 11th Assembly in Karlsruhe, Germany in 2022.

WCC central committee leaders reviewed draft meeting frameworks for both the central committee and the executive committee. The central committee leaders also reviewed the executive committee document list.

The WCC executive committee will meet on 12-17 November, celebrating Bossey’s 75th anniversary on 13 November with students and faculty.

WCC acting general secretary Rev. Prof. Dr Ioan Sauca expressed great joy about being able to plan for an in-person meeting after COVID-19 forced meetings to be online for two years.

“Being able to prepare for both the WCC executive committee and the WCC 11th Assembly gives us cause to celebrate, even while being prayerfully conscious of the grave challenges still weighing heavily on the shoulders of our one human family,” said Sauca. “Seeing the WCC executive committee gather in-person at Bossey in less than a month will bring us all renewed inspiration to continue carrying, together, our vitally important messages of reconciliation and unity.”
